Hippo waiting to have his teeth cleaned
Category: Spontaneous Moments

We were on a Safari in Kruger Park, South Africa. Just when we thought we had seen everything for the day this Hippo opened his mouth. To tell you the truth at a distance I was not sure what I was looking at. I looked at the picture later and noticed the bird in the picture. Then I learned that the birds clean the fish out of the hippos teeth!
